Modern Barbie 1st Birthday

Today’s party is bold and colorful….perfect for a winter Wednesday!  Chloe’s mom contacted me this fall to create a stationery suite for her daughter’s first birthday.  She wanted a modern barbie theme and had already picked out the birthday girl’s darling outfit, which inspired the whole collection!  A hot pink, black and white color palette was born, throw in a touch of zebra print and a modern “barbie” silhouette….and voila!  This is one cute party!

I’m in love with the chalkboard sign that welcomed guests to Chloe’s party!  What a fun piece to have in your home!  A patterned banner decorated the party space and the dessert table took the center stage.

The dessert table was covered with black and white polka dot linens, and was pulled back with two large pink bows.  I love how the use of all glass jars, bowls and cake stands really made the hot pink candy POP! on the table.  Coordinating candy jar tags, cupcake toppers and food tent cards helped to carry the theme throughout the party, as did the darling couture cookies by Allyson Jane Designer Desserts.

Barbie dolls (tied with a coordinating gift tag) were sent home with each child as their party favor….cute and fun, right?!  I love the energy of this party!  So bright and festive….a great way to celebrate Chloe’s first birthday!  I think this party is a perfect example of how to host a cute party indoors (I get so many questions about this during the winter!).  Great job, Wendy!
